Busy Week & Weekend

We had a busy week and weekend. Marshall met some people for the first time and had a few outings. It was so good to get out of the house especially since the weather has finally changed. We had a playdate with the Reeds on Wednesday so he met Jackson and Brayden for the first time that day. These are Chad & Julie's boys - for those of you who don't know - I worked with Julie for a few years at a law firm and they live out in Oakland too so I hope our boys will be friends! We went and saw Travis at work on Thursday and of course Marshall slept the whole time. We had a visit from Aunt Shirley and Sue on Friday. On Saturday, Marshall met our cousins - the Fraziers (Josh, Audrey, Aaliyah and Marlee) from Nashville for the first time. He also met Wayne & Vicki who are like my second parents on Saturday too. Marshall stayed awake for 4 hours that day but passed out as soon as we hit the road. He was so good that day and is really becoming more active. On Sunday night, we went to Travis softball game but he slept through the whole game. So today, we are staying at home and taking it easy and relaxing. This is my last week off work which is really hitting me hard but I just plan on spending as much time with Marshall as I can this week. I have posted some pictures from our week.

Two of the best guys!

Happy One Month Marshall!

Today Marshall has turned one month old today and I can't believe it! This month has flown by. He has really started to become more active now. He has been smiling all day today and just in the best mood. He is such a blessing to us and we can't imagine our lives without him in it.

2 Week Check-up

So we took Marshall in for his 2 week check-up on Friday. I was very nervous driving with him in the car but he slept the whole way there and it wasn't as bad as I thought. He did very well at the doctor. He now weighs 8 pounds 4 ounces and is actually 21 1/2 inches long not 22. But he is a very healthy baby and is doing well so we were very proud. This was the first time that we met our pediatrician and Travis and I loved him. Thanks to Jennifer and Julie for the referral. He was very nice and down to earth and the nurses were very nice. Our appointment was at 9:00 and we were out of there at 9:15. That was awesome too. After we left, Travis went to work and I went to my mom's for a little while. It was nice to get out of the house for a while. Mammaw, of course, was happy to see him as well as my dad and mom. So all in all it was a nice day.

The doctor wore him out...
